To make 6 servings of air fryer biscuits, whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. In a second bowl, whisk egg, buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of melted Cabot salted butter.


Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until some flour remains. Add the shredded Cabot Vermont Sharp or Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese and stir until the cheese is combined and flour is incorporated. Be careful not to over mix. Dust work surface generously with flour. Mound biscuit dough on the work surface in a rough rectangle, about 6-inches long by 4-inches wide. Sprinkle with more flour and pat dough to an even thickness. Flour a knife and cut into six biscuits. Generously coat the bottom and sides of the air fryer basket with cooking spray and a layer of flour (Note: This step is important as the key to prevent the biscuits from sticking to the air fryer basket is to coat the basket with cooking spray and to get a good layer of flour on the bottom as you shape them).


Carefully transfer the biscuits to the basket, making sure they are equally spaced. Air fry the biscuits at 350° F for 15 minutes. Remove from the air fryer. (Note: The biscuits will have expanded and may be attached but can easily be broken into individual biscuits.)


Mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter with garlic salt and brush over the hot biscuits. Serve warm.
